I THINK SHE WROTE THIS POEM BECAUSE SHE TOOK PERSONAL EXPERIENCE FROM HER
LIFE TO WRITE IT. I REALLY LIKE THIS POEM BECAUSE SHE PUTS HER FEELINGS
INTO EVERY POEM SHE WRITES. ONE DAY I WISH TO BECOME A POET AND SHOW THE
WHOLE WORLD THE FEELINGS I FEEL. I WRITE POEMS OF MY OWN AND ONE DAY I WISH
TO GET THEM PUBLISHED.MAYA ANGELOU IS MY MENTOR BECAUSE ONE DAY I WILL HAVE
ENOUGH PASSION TO WRITE THE EVERYDAY THINGS THAT HAPPENS TO ME.
